The capability of India’s armed forces was revealed during the recent china-Indian conflict in Ladakh. After gaining independence from the British in 1947, the Indian Army became the modern Indian Army. However, the ideology, goals and objectives remain the same. The same kind of training and tradition. Moreover, so far the Indian Armed Forces have been playing almost the same role like British.
They have occupied Goa, Sikkim, Hyderabad, Junagadh and a few other independent states. They are still fighting against ethnic groups like Assam, Maoist insurgents, Nagaland, Kashmir, Sikhs etc.
In fact, the situation deteriorated further when Muslims were excluded from the armed forces. Of course, they provide some rhetorical basis, but since 1965 Pakistan-India war, Muslims have not been held in command, power or high position.
The same stance is being taken against the Sikhs after the attack on the Golden Temple, the holiest place of the Sikhs, in the 1980s. The Sikhs are no longer trusted in the armed forces, they are no longer placed in important command.
The notoriety of the Indian Army for suppressing its own people is also widely known. Their human rights violations have surpassed all records. According to independent human rights organizations, India has set a record for all human rights violations in human history. Especially in Kashmir, Punjab, Assam, Bihar, Nagaland their record is the worst.
In the Indian Army, the gap between high-ranking officers and ordinary soldiers in terms of salaries, allowances, facilities, etc is huge. The clothes, shoes, food given to the lower ranks soldiers are tragic. Weapons and ammunition are outdated. War machines are ineffective. This armed forces, will not be able to stand up to the well-equipped, well-trained, Chinese forces.
